Thursday evening Kim came home & we pretty much left immediately to see “Spiderman: Homecoming”.  FANTASTIC movie!  I know comic book movies aren’t for everyone, but I’m all in for the Marvel & DC comic book movies!  “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” were really good as well.  I couldn’t get into “Sin City” or any other graphic novel movies though.

 

That was our Thursday evening.  Friday morning we woke up & weren’t sure what to do with ourselves.  I had 3 things that needed to be done.  We went out in the late afternoon.  I had my Roughrider jersey from Andy Fantuz fixed, Kim picked up a few groceries we needed for supper.  Brewster & I went along but stayed in the vehicle.  He loves going for a “car ride”.  A “ride” in the summer means he gets to drool/pant all over my arm until we’re somewhere I can roll down the window for him!

Friday, after the few errands were done, we just stayed home.  I watched the Toronto Blue Jays actually win a game & Kim put the house back together after a morning of cleaning.  She doesn’t just clean, she does “spring cleaning” every weekend.  Everything is 10 feet away from where it’s supposed to be so she can clean underneath where it was!  I just try to stay out of her way!

Saturday we went over to my parents place for some BBQ ribs after an afternoon in the backyard, with my mother & aunt.  I found out the hard way that Molson original 16 in a can is a wee bit too carbonated for me, I switched to rum & coke!

Sundays are pretty quiet here.  Kim’s got a few things left on the grocery list.  I made a juice for the week.  Peeled all remaining carrots to BBQ them then keep them handy in the fridge.  BBQ carrots & onion are commonly a vegetable for supper or some type of broccoli dish, I love broccoli!  I’m in the middle of a Blue Jays game at the moment.

That’s our weekend here.  Remember it will be quiet on the blog page until Thursday again, I’ll catch you then!

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

 

Another reason for me to NOT buy terrible overpriced Molson beer at the new Mosaic Stadium!  $9 for a regular size can of Pilsner, Coors, or Coors Light……..NOT HAPPENING!

No Bushwakker’s or Rebellion?!?  No more beer for me at the new Mosaic stadium!  This no local beer really bugs me since the Saskatchewan Roughriders are a “community owned” team.  I don’t typically drink beer at a game, but lots of others do, & most of them don’t seem to care what it is as long as there is alcohol in it.  This “no community craft beer” rule is a laughable situation.  “Kick the little guy while we let the big corporate Molson Brewing control all & reap the benefits by charging our customers 300% than the store bought price”

If I really need to, I’ll get drunk at home, on craft beer & pay less while doing so.

FYI, I’ve only seen Molson Canadian being consumed by those that have just turned the legal age to drink alcohol or at a football game.  It’s like Fosters beer in Australia, Australians don’t drink much Foster’s beer from what I hear?

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “….like clockwork”.  Guess who played drums on this album?  The name rhymes with Rave Roll?

I exercised to “A. D.D.” the album “Core” then “Alice in Chains” their Greatest Hits” the songs before singer, Layne Staley, died from a heroin overdose.

I remember Chris Messer telling me that the band I was with in university, should play “Man in the Box” my voice hadn’t completely changed from being a bass singer in high school yet.  The song was pretty difficult for me.

I exercise daily because I have to if I want to walk again.  I miss it when I’m supposed to be relaxing.  The part I really like about it is my rotation of T-Shirts that fit has grown!  Seems as though each week I can add another shirt into the mix.  This week started off with the addition of 3 T-Shirts.  That’s my wardrobe, concert T-Shirts & mostly shorts.

I really don’t like the heat!  Our windows face south so it’s always warm in here.  Even if the blinds are closed, even in the winter, it can get up to 89F or 28C.  Far too warm for me!  In the summer I can turn on the air conditioner to keep it at 22C.  In the winter I’m hooped?  I don’t even turn on the heat.  I did last winter & it kicked in 3 times, the rest of the winter it was really “hot in herre” even when I left the door open.  The heat from the sun kept it at a more than balmy 89F, 31C.  If we were going out I’d keep my shorts & T-Shirt on & bring my jacket with me.  I don’t wear my winter jacket much, usually a bunny hug/hoodie.  If you’re from Saskatchewan you know what a bunny hug is, if you’re anywhere else & say that, people look at you like you’re absolutely crazy!  That or on occasion in other Canadian provinces someone will say “So, you’re from Saskatchewan I assume?”

This is mostly hearsay & vague memories.  I think I was 3 or 4 years old.  I had a Care bear, the yellow one with a sun on it’s stomach “Sunshine Bear” or “Funshine Bear” whatever it was called, that thing came with me everywhere!  I had just shown interest in watching hockey.  The Edmonton Oilers were the team to watch.  My parents took me to Edmonton, the bear came along too.  We went to see the Edmonton Oilers practice at the West Edmonton Mall rink.  Wayne Gretzky was there.  We watched the practice.  One of the players skate towards us & waved at us.  I asked my mom “Who is that?” she replied “That was Wayne Gretzky”.  I was confused, “Where are his 9s?”  Practice jerseys don’t have numbers on them, I found out the hard way?

 

We stayed overnight at a hotel.  On the way home I was devastated.  I lost my Care bear.  I’m guessing I was bawling?  My parents called the hotel, & they found it when cleaning the room.  They mailed the bear to us & all was well.

 

I really like Edmonton, other than that trip.  I was a kid who A) Didn’t recognize Wayne Gretzky & B) Lost his teddy bear!  Sad trip for a 4 year old!

ROUGH NIGHT, MORE SO FOR KIM/MORALITY ISSUE REGARDING OZZY

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “In Loving Memory of…..”

From their first album released in 1997. This is a live version from Roy Thompson Hall w/ The Toronto Symphony Orchestra. This is also the song they were playing in 1999 when I broke my nose at a 1 day festival in Saskatoon called Edgefest. Still the only broken bone I’ve ever had.

Yes, we had a rough night, that’s why I don’t remember what I fell asleep to. I do remember listening to 1 of 4 or 5 entire albums “Pearl Jam” the album “Yield”

Kim was up & down from the bed last night. Brewster has terrible anxiety when just about anything out of the ordinary happens. Last night there was a storm. The first crack of thunder & Brewster starts freaking out. Up & down of the bed, which means Kim has to help him up onto the bed, he is small & can’t jump that high. He has anti-anxiety pills, valium, he doesn’t take them if he smells it inside of whatever bite of food we try to cover it in? I understand why he doesn’t like it, so does Kim. He trips & falls over when he gets a pill, & it’s not good for his liver.

By the time I fell asleep it had to have been after 1:00 am? Kim was up much longer cleaning up Brewster’s poop & pee while he wandered throughout the house, then I fell asleep after useless trying to calm him down. Kim figures she got 2 hours of sleep because he wouldn’t take his pill.

He’s 10 ½ years old now. You think he’d be over this but he’s not. Guess who’s sleeping in his bed on the floor beside me? We’re not supposed to coddle him when he’s panting & pacing around the house, so we don’t, but he still does it anyways.

The rest of this I wrote yesterday!

A SHORT RANT ABOUT NOTHING THAT BECAME A LONG RANT

I love watching the Toronto Blue Jays pregame, it’s good for a laugh! It’s fun watching the Blue Jay analyst, Gregg Zaun, get so bent out of shape because of new rules. He was a catcher in the major leagues for 15 years, I believe mainly a back up catcher, I could be wrong? His last game played was in 2010. He’s now a part of a ½ hour pregame show on every Blue Jay game. What I find amusing is that I hear him, almost daily, say “The game’s been played this way forever! Why change it now?”. Well, “….it’s called evolution baby….”

Now onto “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCowen” who defends Blue Jay knuckle ball pitcher 42 year old R.A. Dickey. I only watch his first hour on Mondays & Fridays when he takes calls from anyone about any sport. The Blue Jays acquired Dickey in 2013. He won the Cy Young award in the National league in 2012 with the NY Mets. After his win Tuesday evening in Houston he is currently 8W-12L for the year. Pretty bad if you ask me. I, like many others including himself, have no clue how he’ll pitch on any given day? The knuckle ball is different than any other pitch & few people can throw it. It does not spin, without it spinning it floats, flutters, & dives where ever. You throw it towards the catcher & hope it hits the strike zone. Personally, too much of a risk for me.

I listen to Bob McCowen & he says “Wait until Dickey gets to the 2nd half of the season, he’s really good!” Great Bob, that makes me feel better……wait…………..a full season is 32 starts. So 16 of them I’m not supposed to worry about? The games in April count as much as the games in September I thought. So including Tuesday’s win he’s 1W-3L in his last four games & we’re in the 2nd half of the season? Great!…………………….I’m confused?

Starting pitcher Aaron Sanchez is 24 years old & on pace to have a Cy Young year. The Cy Young award is given to the 2 best pitchers during a season, 1 National league pitcher & 1 American league pitcher. This is Aaron Sanchez’s first full year as a starting pitcher. The Blue Jays brass has said he will be going to the bull pen, joining the relief pitchers. Why? They want to baby him so that his arm wont fall off, & save him for the potential playoffs. His arm is safer as a reliever? If his arm falls off who cares where he’s pitching? He’s young & already among the best pitchers in the game. What if he moves to the bullpen & the Jays don’t make the playoffs? Now who’s got mud on their face? What are you going to do with him next year?

Ha! I’m not the only one! Most Blue Jay fans will agree!

He could at least record a live set of 40-55 minutes?

HOW WILL THE BLUE JAYS DO THIS YEAR? I DONT KNOW?

I fell asleep to “Tom Cochrane” the album “Mad, Mad. World” then “Dream Theater” the new album “The Astonishing”

I exercised to”Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

Jose Bautista calls out the Blue Jays’ owners knowing his contract is done at the end of this season. I think he just became a trade able player come July 31st pending on where the Blue Jays are in the standings. He didn’t say how long or how much he asked for. I assume it’s in the neighbour hood of $25,000,000 a year for 5 years. In his fifth year of that contract he’ll be 41 years old & his numbers likely wont be that good. I’d let him dangle & see who wants him & what can the Jays get in return? If their budget isn’t raised for the next few years they wont be able to afford him. Their budget for this year is roughly $145,000,000 with 5 guys including Bautista earning $17,000,000-$25,000,000 next year! A teacher should be making that kind of money, not people that PLAY A GAME FOR A LIVING!!!!!!!! Sign him, don’t sign him, it really doesn’t matter. Then Blue Jays analyst Gregg Zaun chimes in “…..he needs to put food on the table…”???????????????? That’s some expensive food! Maybe don’t have 2 plates of steak & lobster for 3 meals a day? Any average Joe doesn’t pull in that kind of cash? It’s like you’re winning the lottery every year????????? Trade the 2 big sluggers at the deadline, rebuild the depleted farm system, pick up someone capable & cheaper. Time to play “Moneyball”!!!! I want $8,000,000 for being an OK cribbage player! Give me $1-$100 I’d be happy & grateful. So how are the Jays going to do this year? I really don’t care as long as it’s entertaining.

Yes, there are far too many artists that passed to early. For some it was they didn’t realize the cocaine, heroin, acid, meth, etc. They didn’t realize what they were putting into their bodies could kill them.

I’d like to know what her motive is to lie under oath? There likely isn’t one at the moment. I don’t know what the upside is of sending a producer to jail? I’d call it a closed case once he’s in jail.

If you still have U2’s free album on your phone and don’t want it you have 3 options. Delete it with the app that was released the next day, just don’t listen to it or wait 2 weeks until the next iPhone comes out! I like the album I kept it. If I had any type of cell phone this wouldn’t mean a thing to me.
